It’s time for the racers to head to Corsica France at the beginning of this TAR 33 recap. The race is becoming more and more challenging. I feel like it has been a year since the last episode. Then, again, it is Groundhog Day. I feel like I’ve had three years of Groundhog Day. By the way, General Beauregard Lee did not see his shadow today. (It was a crap day) so spring is coming soon for the south. Sorry to the yankees and their yankee groundog. 🙂 Looks like winter is there to stay for a while longer. Also, a lot of people from this site have let me know they have Covid privately. It seems like we are in the middle of another wave. Stay safe y’all. Covid is not over. Wear a mask, wash your hands and stay away from people!
Say Cheese or Mule Please
On to the THIRD recap of the night. 🙂 The remaining racers board a private plane to head to an unknown destination. But we know they are going to Corsica! I would like to be in Corsica right now. Totally adding to my travel list. First they head off to Belvedere de Corte. Sign me up! They need to pick up a container of goats milk needed for either choice on the detour. The choice is Say Cheese or Kneel Please. They don’t really know the challenge but in Say Cheese they have to make three batches of cheese. In the other challenge, they have to get donkeys to carry the milk to a cheese farm.
The good news is that this week so far Sheri doesn’t have to jump off anything. The bad news that it is a very mountainous island. And once again Akbar is bitching at her for being out of breath as she has literally carried this man on her back this whole season. WTF has he done other than be a dick? I hate him more with every episode. Because the two choices are all on the same route, Penn and Kim can see the people ahead of them all making cheese so they opt to do the mule challenge. Then, Dusty and Ryan contemplate moving to the mule challenge because the cheese thing is taking forever. Of course Akbar wants Sheri to make the cheese.
Kim and Penn Take the Lead!
I am the worst dog mom in the world. Banjo just showed up to ask me for his “peanut butter” which is for his meds. Meanwhile, Penn and Kim take the lead by killing the mule task. They are in the lead. I kinda feel bad for calling them Team Older People when I could probably be their mama. It was out of love, I root for older people because hell I can’t even open a jar anymore. Or a bottle since my bottle opener and favorite souvenir from the Co Cola place randomly went missing along with some other things…IJS. Putting the saddle on the mule properly is apparently hard. Everyone is struggling and they are way out in front. I am not even sure which female team put the saddle on upside down. I literally still can’t recall the names of these people unless the give me a chyron. Sorry, it’s been a long few hours.
The other teams can see Kim and Penn passing them and heading off to the next checkpoint. Dusty and Ryan are not happy. No one has successfully made cheese yet. Lulu and Lala are the first to make cheese. YAY! Ryan and Dusty are being left in the dust! Raquel and Cayla (flight attendants? ) complete their task. Sheri and of course completes the challenge. Akbar just offers opinions. Arun and Natalia are done. Is this the end for Ryan and Dusty? I like them! I like most all of them. So, I am on the end of my seat over here! Ryan and Dusty switch challenges. Things just keep getting worse for them.
Road Block Who Wants To Make A Splash?
I’m going to guess right now that whatever it is Sheri has to do it again. They have to rappel into a river and find a clue . This one I think I could do. Back in my youth I went rappelling with my boyfriend because that is what he did and so that is what I did. But today, I am way older and way, way, way, fatter and so I really probably could not. Oh wait. There is a swimming component. I’m out. While I may be very buoyant, water sports are not my thing. Penn does manage to find the clue though. Dusty and Ryan are in last place!!!! The other teams are so happy. I really like Dusty and Ryan. But, I also understand they are huge competitors that they want to knock out.
The twins are made because Raquel Lulu helped her and then left her when she found the clue. Um, what was she supposed to do, wait for her? It’s a RACE! For the final leg they have to inflate a “kayak” to head to the pitstop. Oh look! Akbar actually did a challenge. Of course he complains about how hard it was. Ryan has caught up to him. As much as I don’t want Sheri to go home, I think she needs a break from all the abuse. Way to fuck it up Akbar. Sheri has done all of the hardest challenges. Now he is going to lost it for him Ken and Penn are team number one. They won 5K. The twins misread the clue and now they have to go back up and drop off their backpacks. Oh no!
Dusty and Ryan come in third somehow. Sheri and Akbar go home. I am sorry for Sheri but not Akbar.
